I’ll have a pint of that Campari, then…

 

Eva Green

 

You’d think they would have gone for somebody a bit good looking, but here’s one of umpteen adverts Eva Green made for the weird pink stuff (“Cahmpahri” is more how she says it…)

 

Here she is flogging hair products…the range is called Wet Domination. Really.
“Hi guys” is straight out of the call centre team leader handbook and the cheery wish to “see you soon” is unlikely to be fulfilled unless she’s necking Cahmpahri in Stratford’s these days.

 

The cover of a recent Stylist magazine features this unbelievably bad sentence.  You know what it means, but you don’t know how they got there…

Flogging pens…

Lancôme!

Eva Green is apparently the richest female actor in the world.

Edinburgh stuff…

It’s a lousy picture because I had to take it quickly, but here’s proof that in Edinburgh’s Manhattan, we get philosophy in white vans…

 

Cave Haymarket Edinburgh

You want outsider art?  Well, it’s outside a pub at Haymarket.

 

Sainsburys Murrayfield Edinburgh

Lapping up that white-boy funk (in beer form…) in the retail paradise that is Sainsbury’s Murrayfield – note the careful use of premium, refrigerated shelf space for emptiness.

 

Picture House Lothian Road Edinburgh

Lastly, here’s quite a nice poster which has appeared outside what was The Picture House in Lothian Road.  It seems to list all the bands which played there during its too-brief tenure as a venue between 2008 and (just) 2014.  Wetherspoon’s bought the venue and are making it into a pub, which is how business works, but I do rather fear that having a huge, cheap boozer on Lothian Road will return the street to its 70’s and 80’s heyday as an extended bear garden.

And, of course, it means that Edinburgh no longer has a circa 2,000 capacity venue.  Not so good.

 

Eva Green, who has probably never been in Edinburgh, takes it philosophically…
